Stefan Schütz
Ph. D.
After my PhD research at Saarland University, in the theoretical quantum physics group of Giovanna Morigi, I joined Guido Pupillo‘s group in October 2016. My focus lies on the studies of open quantum systems in the framework of Quantum Master Equations in order to describe effective interactions that are mediated by auxiliary systems, e.g. confined light fields. Its presence can, for instance, induce collective dissipative processes and alter transport properties. Such effects open the way to modify properties of light and matter in a desired manner.
Keywords: Quantum Master Equation, light-matter interactions, effective coherent and dissipative couplings
Andreas Geißler
Ph. D.
Already in my undergraduate studies, I have been strongly interested in the theoretical analysis of strongly correlated many particle quantum systems. Up to my master’s thesis the focus has mainly been on condensed matter systems – with a short detour into classical field theory as applied to the study of orientation maps in the primary visual cortex. Throughout my doctorate research, I have investigated the possibility of supersolidity in strongly correlated Rydberg quantum gases. Now as a research fellow, I am working on the characterization of the many-body localization transition using operator based methods. The overarching motif of my research is the development of efficient many-body methods to crack their associated exponential complexity.
Keywords: Numerical Many-Body Methods, Ultracold Quantum Gases, Many-Body Localization
